011/365: Winter Bird Convention


I was in search of ice today, but it wasn’t as exciting and I was hoping it would be. So I drove back off the harbor and found a whole flock of birds hanging out by these naked trees. They were so fascinating and, if you ask  me, they probably didn’t realize it was that cold out.

010/365: I obey


Today I spent some of my bonus money on a superficial upgrade. About six people are interested in this upgrade. Two of whom have passed away. None of them are me.


I don’t feel like myself in a suit. Or long sleeve shirts. Or thongs. I feel comfortable in comfortable clothes. I like laying on the floor without having to worry about crushed baby Cheerios or dog pee.

And so…

I am a good boy. And good boys obey.

009/365: Ollie Pesca Fish



For my fun-day Friday challenge I decided to take a fish of our silent (but deadly) goldfish Ollie. He silently watches us eat, get ready in the morning and is fascinated by our nine-month old in the only way a fish can be.

008/365: States of winter waters



The snow continues to fall. Tonight I went out for a local view of the weather and noticed our storm door was frozen in some parts, water in some and clear in some. The hundred-year-old door is doing its job, but the new metal one isn’t.

007/365: Childs’ play


We take a moment to pause after taking our nine-month old to the doctor for a bump on her head. The three of us played with this, not only as a distraction but because we were having fun.

006/365: The real snowman


Snow removal is essential. And this man takes it seriously even in sub-freezing temps. As the weather dips even lower, I am grateful for his service today.

005/365: A new coffee treat

005/365: A new coffee treat


I am a venti non-fat, no-water, one-shot Chai tea latte kinda guy. And I am always on the search for something new. And that’s this delicious drink: Taste Cafe’s Spanish Latte, which is a regular latte but sweetened with sweetened condensed milk.

004/365: Unused by snow


The first big snow of 2015 blankets out backyard and makes the disused furniture seem out of place.

003/365: Smoking in the rain


There are many things that go with a cloudy day: hot cocoa, hats and cigarettes. Walking down the street this woman enjoyed a puff, managing to keep her cigarette lit.

002/365: Abandoned food


I was pretty shocked walking by a bus shelter with a couple bags of perfectly good food sitting there. Had they fallen out of the bag? Forgotten by someone?

These were sitting here — not staged, moved or altered.

Who would do that?
